Chachi Says Console Review: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate!

Welcome to another Chachi Says Console review: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate! Pausing my vacation to throw up a review of the latest edition of Assassin’s Creed game for all of you. Assassin’s Creed is one of the few games that make me want to buy a new system for and i did. My main worry about doing so is wondering if the game is worth it. It is. 100 percent worth it as far as Assassin’s creed games go. I am going to do my best to not spoil any major plot lines in the game while doing this. Lets get to it!

Game: Assassin’s Creed Syndicate

Developer: Ubisoft

Platform: Xbox One

actitleObject:

Relive the Memory of an assassin in history to stop the templar attempts at world domination.

Game Play:

If you are up to date on your Assassin’s Creed games then you know since Desmond there hasn’t been an up front out of Animus character. This does not change here you are playing yet another unknown person helping the assassin’s stop the current day Templars by reliving past assassins. This time the game takes place in London 1868. For the first time you play as assassin brother and sister Jacob and Evie Frye looking to take back London from templar control for the first time in 100 years. You are able to switch between the two and roam the streets as whichever sibling you want. Which i think is a great adjustment to the game series allowing you to play a strong female lead.

evieAll of the side missions and collection quests are still here with an assortment of npc characters to help you along the way as long as you help them as usual. (My favorite being Robert Topping aka “Bookie Bob” he controls the fight clubs and races throughout the city.) The gang aspect of the series has returned allowing you to reclaim the city as you go all from the constantly rolling train headquarters through different aspects. Gang headquarter, stopping child labor and kidnapping criminals for arrest help you claim back the city.

The free run aspect has been tweaked a bit adding different buttons for up and down travel which stops from the many accidental jumps and death falls. The introduction of a zip line gun allows for quicker free run travel and makes you feel like an assassin spider man (in my opinion) making it more fun to travel the rooftops. There is no ship travel or just plain horse travel in this entry but it has been replaced with Horse and carriage travel. Allowing you to travel the city in this method as a pre car GTA style. You have to remember that it is london so be sure to drive on the correct side of the road. Yes, i am speaking from experience, i spent 10 mins getting irritated because there was alway oncoming traffic….

The usual introduction of historic characters continue as you help Charles Dickens, Queen Victoria, Karl Marx and more accomplish the things they are are known for as well as a glitch in the animus memory that allows you to help Winston Churchill fight WW1.acgp1Ubisoft also added in a skills upgrade section allowing you to grow a bit at a time as you see fit for each character, and gang skill upgrade to help maintain control of the city. This adds to the crafting aspect of the game making it harder to decide what you want to concentrate your money and resources on in the game.

Sound and Graphics:

The sound and graphics are exactly what they need to be. The update to the graphics to match the current gen console are right on point. The sound and music from the time period provide a completely immersive environment for you to enjoy. The attention to detail in the graphics of this game will be noticed. i spent a lot of time looking for real life locations in 1868.

acgp2Overall:

Overall, the game play, story, sound and graphics are exactly what you are expecting on this gen of Assassin’s Creed games. The details along with the changes in the right elements of game play make for an enjoyable game from start to finish. I hope when a new AC game comes out that i find it to be the best entry in the series thus far and it did not let me down. I give this a hard 5 out of 5 and recommend that you get it if you can.

Playing off screen: Hillary Rodham Clinton Presidential Playset!

Welcome to a segment we are going to call Playing off screen. Sometimes your favorite console stops working, your power goes out, your parents or significant other takes your console away because you forgot to take the trash out while playing your current favorite game and need to show some responsibility and for those moments you need to take it off screen. we’ll have just the thing for you!

Hill-0617 (1)

 

It’s election day so you need to Get out and vote! Done? Good! Now that you’ve done your patriotic duty you deserve to play and what a better thing to play with then the Hillary Rodham Clinton Presidential Play set (Available November 17th) from Quirk books. The amazingly fun yet simplistic paper doll play set is fun for all ages, sexes, and political affiliation….okay maybe not republicans but who knows!

From the get go you are met by HRC in her trademark pantsuit all ready to go. Don’t worry, she doesn’t always have to be in that pantsuit. You can put the presidential hopeful in 2 other pantsuits, presidential pj’s, ball gown not mention an expression for every situation. Don’t worry though she’s not alone on her quest to the White House. Retired husband Bill is back in the oval wearing his pj’s. He can spend his downtime playing the sax or mowing the lawn.

Hill-0629 (1)

The book comes with 3 different backdrops for the Former First Lady to spend her time in, The oval, front lawn or situation room await her. She doesnt have to go alone either. There are two different Supreme court justices, 2 celebs, 5 ghosts, or half of the republican party because even paper play sets need enemies. However, you dont need to worry about her safety, there is a secret service agent or the Freedom Eagle are there to protect her.

Hill-0630

While fun there are some things that could be improved on or that just don’t make sense. One of the “white house ghosts” is Famous pilot Amelia Earhart. Take your time when popping the pieces out because while they are sturdy there are not cardboard more a heavy paper, Which makes the bases not as strong as they should be. Some of the outfits don’t work with the bases but that can fixed with a quick snip of the scissors. They are constantly releasing more characters, outfits, and backgrounds to increase your replay value.

Hill-0661 (1)

Overall, not a bad idea with a pretty good execution. The book is out November 17th and you can pick yours up over at quirkbooks.com!

And if Quirk books would release a version with Donald Trump we wouldn’t mind too much. wink wink nudge nudge.


Thanks for tuning in!
